'Oh Joy' Restoration - 12/16/09

Well, I finally got the aft Head bulkhead out after removing the rest of the Port deck frames and pulling the House frame up.



Of course, there was some rot as expected. The rib is gone down to just above the keel strap.



I stuck a screwdriver in it easily..



The bulkhead tie is rotten and broken as well.



The rest of the ribs and planking look pretty good. There are a couple of cracked ribs but the sisters that are in place are still fine. No telling how many years ago this was done. I haven't decided to pull and replace those cracked ribs yet.



I am thinking of replacing all of the chainplates.



This glove is a reminder of not wearing gloves when running machinary. I was jointing when it grabbed the glove. I yanked the hand away when I felt the tug and missed getting a nasty boo boo.



I have to pull this Chainplate Partner to get the clamp out.



Lot's of work yet to do on this old girl... Anybody wanna run up to Bellingham and get dirty?

Charlie...you have a University in town...why not set up a wooden boat workshop/fourm of some sort..Im sure there are a few interested bodies up there that would be eager to learn a thing or two.

Keep them away from everything but sandpaper...and maybe the mulity tool. Would make some kid in town a darn good good Seinor High school project as well.

Put an add for that in Craigs list.

And cover up or remove that toilet before it gets damaged or broken.

That's what the shop vacs are for. I'll be pulling the soles once I finish the tear down phase so I can run the new ribs. Oh Joy has really good access to the bilges and while deep, they are tightly sealed on the edges. No place for stuff to go when they're opened up,

I used to work for that yard back in the 70's as a launch operator and general yard hand for a summer. Have not heard it called Halesite in years it is better know as Huntington, Halesite is just a small part of Huntington. I grew up in Northport the town next door. They were not building boats any more but had many of the sheds and tooling still around. Ahh the old days of real boat yards! Those were the days.

I've talked to the Grandson and asked him about drawings. Unfortunately, nobody knows where they went after the old man died. Maybe in Grandma's attic? The Builder's Plaque stated Halesite as the location so I just go with that.
